College Football Saturday, August 24, 2019

Florida vs. Miami (in Orlando, FL) | 7pm | ESPN

Off a 10-3 season that resulted in a third place finish in the SEC East, the Florida Gators will look to take another step forward now in the second season of the Dan Mullen regime. As for Miami, the slate has been wiped clean in Coral Gables with Manny Diaz making his debut as the Canes shot caller. Florida opened up at 8-point neutral field chalk for this matchup, but the betting markets have sided with the Hurricanes plus the points in early wagering with the number to beat down to +7.5 at online sportsbooks.

The defending champs kickoff their 2019-20 campaign with a non-divisional home ACC clash against a Ramblin’ Wreck they’ve beaten into a bloody pulp dating back to the 2012 season. During that stretch, Georgia Tech has amassed just one win and one pointspread cover per the closing college football betting lines. They did manage one push, but lost the other five games by an average of 21.2 points per game.

Both the Boilermakers and Wolf Pack look to be on the rise with the former lacing up its bowling shoes each of the last two seasons, and the latter winning eight games and returning to the bowl season last year after a two-season hiatus. This late night kick on CBSSN is sure to have some fireworks going off with both offenses returning a bulk of the pieces that saw each rank out in the top 40 of total offense a short season ago. Early money has sided with the Boilermakers who originally hit the board as 8.5-point road favorites but currently check in at -9.

Last year’s runner-ups open their 2019-20 campaign at Mercedes-Benz Stadium where they’ll run up against David Cutcliffe’s Blue Devils in a key early-season ACC/SEC clash. While Duke normally fields competitive teams year in and year out under the current regime, linemakers think they’re a bit overmatched for this one against Tua Tagovailoa and company with the Crimson Tide installed hefty 32-point favorites for this neutral field clash. The last time Duke and Alabama partook in gridiron warfare, the Crimson Tide waltzed their way to the 62-13 win and cover as 24-point Durham favorites.

This will be the third time in the last four seasons that Auburn kicks off its respective campaign with a huge early non-conference clash against another team with national championship aspirations. Last year, they disposed of Washington 21-16 to win and cover in a hard fought battle that wasn’t decided until the game’s closing moments.

College Football Sunday, September 1, 2019

Houston at Oklahoma | 7:30pm | ABC

Dana Holgorsen will have a tough task ahead of him when he kicks off his stay in Houston as the Cougars new head coach when he runs up against Lincoln Riley’s Oklahoma Sooners who enter the season with national championship aspirations. Though Kyler Murray has since moved onto the NFL, you can bet your bottom dollar that Boomer Sooner still trots out one of the more potent offenses in the country. Even so, the betting markets have shown an inkling for taking the heaping load of points with the Cougars who currently find themselves 26-point underdogs after hitting the board at +26.5.

College Football Monday, September 2, 2019

Notre Dame at Louisville | 8pm | ESPN

The Bobby Petrino era is over in Louisville; again! The Scott Satterfield era will commence in the final game of the Week 1 college football betting season when his Cardinals host Notre Dame on Labor Day. It was a dreadful season for the Cards a season ago as they only managed two wins and failed to log a single win in ACC play. There will be some growing pains under the new coaching staff, and it won’t be easy running up against a Fighting Irish squad that saw its season come to a close in the semis of the College Football Playoffs. Brian Kelly’s troops currently check in as near 3 TD favorites to win the game!
